How to Make an Easy Lego Table

You know that Santa is a pretty smart fella!  He knew that if he brought my boys the LEGO sets they were wanting then they would need a Lego table to build them on so little brother couldn’t get them.  We love our smaller LEGO table, but this one makes it so everyone can play together.

How to Build a LEGO Table

But, knowing that we don’t have the room for a permanent Lego table, he brought us one that not only folds flat, but folds in half as well.  That Santa is a smarty pants indeed.  After inspecting the table I thought I would try and let you know how he built it. 😉

Santa used a Lifetime 34-inch square fold in half table.   (Getting the right table is important for this project.) The great thing about this table is not only that it can be stored easily when the kids are not using it, but it is also very durable like other Lifetime tables.

Santa used two of the LEGO Large Building Plates 4 Piece set that can be found at Amazon.com.  Two of these were perfect for this table because all of the pieces were used except one green plate and one and a half blue plates, which are great to have on hand anyway and it is less expensive to buy them as a set.

Santa used Liquid Nails to glue the two 15″ grey base plates to one side of the folding table  and then 3 of the 10″ green base plates to the other side of the fold in the table.  He then cut two of the 10″ blue base plates in half using an Xacto Knife and glued three of them up next to the green base plates, leaving approximately 3 inches around the entire outside of the table.   Then you can use extra Lego pieces to make sure the pieces were spaced correctly after being glued down, but before the glue dried, so that you can build across the entire table if they wanted, which has definitely come in handy.  That Santa sure knows a thing or two about making toys!

And of course you may be thinking, “Okay, that is cool and all but I don’t have the time or the desire to make one.”  🙂 Well, in that case, yes, you can just buy a LEGO table already made.  I’ve found some great ones at Amazon and Ebay.

      We don’t have room to have a permanent Lego table so this works perfect for my boys. This is the first year they have really started obsessing over Legos so it was perfect timing to get it. And plus, it keeps the Legos off the floor away from my baby.

      Thanks Susie! I’m so excited! This was the first link party I have done. I’m getting a blog button made up but don’t have it yet. I’ll send it your way probably tomorrow.

    Found your blog from the UBP13 and I just wanted to say this is an ingenious idea! Tucking this away in my memory for a Christmas gift for my 3 boys this year! 🙂

    I don’t know what it is about boys and legos but my grandson’s are wild about them. I guess they are just natural builders. Anyhow I am sharing this post with my creative daughter in hopes that she can start this project in time for Christmas. Thanks!
